Firewood Kiln

A firewood kiln is a good way to get dried wood for your stove in a manner of days, not months and years. These are usually used more by commercial operations to quickly process their fuel. Some people say that the kiln process, while reducing the process, doesn't season the wood as well as air drying. It's debatable for sure. One advantage is that the heating process does kill a lot of the related fungus and bugs which can plaque an outdoor pile.

The other downside to a kiln is that it takes quite a bit of energy to dry firewood. It seems a little counterintuitive to spend a bundle of money heating and processing your fuel, especially if it a gas or oil powered drier. However, if you're looking to buy wood, having it be kiln processed is just as acceptable as air drying.
